A quotient is the result you get when you divide one number by another number. For 1 to be an irrational number, the quotient of two integers canNOT equal 1.
In other words, for 1 to be an irrational number, 1 canNOT be expressed as a ratio where both the numerator and denominator are integers (whole numbers).
